Cuttlebug Challenge and a New DT WOW

First off let me say that I am very happy to join the Design Team for Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends. This is a new group to me and I have been having fun getting to know my way around. Jennifer is really great and she has some wonderful challenges and all sorts of stuff is happening over there, so please come and Check it out at http://scrapbookingcraftingfriends.ning.com/.
Next on the list for today is my entry for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Birthday Party Palooza.http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ This first image is for last weeks challenge which was to pick a theme and make a party invitation. Well I didn't get mine in by the deadline by any means but I did it and it must be a part of this set. The theme is Kylies 1st Birthday and since she is such a little cutie pie cupcake kind of girl her theme is going to be Cupcake Girly Party. WOO Hoo! Kylie.
I just had to add in a photo of this standing up. Info on inside the usual.
So this last week the Challenge was to do a Gift Bag and Card for the Birthday Girl. Here is my take on that. I am using different makers papers for these challenges as well as a varity os stamps. Whatever fits the theme and challenge. Papers here are SU, Bo Bunny, Doodlebug and DCWV and the stamps are Mo's Digital Pencil, SU, Verve. I have used Cuttlebug Embossing Folders and A new Die of Flowers that I bought Sat. Nesties by Spellbinders and I did them with my Big Shot. I don't play Favorites. LOL I love everything.
I was also introduced to the blog Sunflowers and Dragonflies today by Beth and the challenge over there this week is to do a card or project with something sweet. I think these cupcakes work. LOL You should go check out this blog, great challenges and tutorials and I know one of the people over there is really nice and I bet all the rest of them are too. http://www.sunflowers-dragonflies.ca/blog/2711/sd-challenge-8-sweet-tooth/Heres the link to the challenge this week.

Another view of the two projects together. Aren't those swizzel sticks cute? And the cupcake looks good enough to eat. Yummo!

You know the pattern for this gift bag I got by way of Mel Stampz http://melstampz.blogspot.com/2008/11/50-gift-bag-templates.html but now I can't find the exact htlm for it so I'm just giving you this link because you will be sure to find something to your likeing. I love this womans blog. She does the most amazing things and I haven't even scratched the surface. Go visit and start herehttp://melstampz.blogspot.com/so you don't miss anything.
Here is a view of the bag alone.
